what i must mention is that this is the first Belgian Beer i've ever seen in cans, which is what led me to buying a six pack to try...
once poured into a tall pilsner glass a fizzy short head appears leaving a very weak lace that trickles down the sides of the glass.... a light yellow colored beer that is very similar to the color of the mass produced mexican beers that are pilsner influenced.
the aroma is light with a slightly harsh citrus tinge to it which i enjoyed greatly..
the flavor though, or lack of, is a bit off putting.. i was expecting more from a Belgian beer. no hop flavor and very little flavor of anything else for that matter. goes down very easy. the carbonation really comes through if rolled around over your tongue, leaving you with an almost "just brushed my teeth" feeling. sounds worse than it actually is..
in the end i found that i would buy this beer again if i was in a situation where i couldn't have bottles and needed to find something drinkable in a can. and for 5.99 a six pack of a beer imported from belgium, you're not overspending.
the price equals the flavor here.

Pours a clear, bright, straw yellow with a voluminous white head. Scattered lacing results when the head dissipates to a chunky film.
Smell is missing. A lot of inhalation results in little being found, some citrus/floral hops, some faint malt. Is this a BMC product?
Taste is much more prevalent with the aforementioned citrus & floral hops, malt, a wee bit of alcohol but no burn, some saltiness crackers, maybe some apple?
Medium bodied with restrained effervescence. A decent, fading, aftertaste. This isn't a BMC brew, the hops are not overpowering, it has some flavor and some balance. There really isn't anything to recommend this but it's no drain pour either. To quote a friend, "it doesn't suck". But that is the best thing I can say about it.

Pours a pale straw color and a little hazy; kind of unusual for a pilsner. Nice lacework as the very delicate foam falls. This beer has a delicate aroma of grain with a hint a grassiness. A very light, delicate pilsner, with a bit of spritziness to it. (This could be the result of my careful pour.) The flavor is grainy with hint of minerals. The finish is fairly bitter and dry. Almost makes me think of light version of Duvel. What attracts me the most with this beer is its gentle graininess in the flavor and dryness. Nothing too exciting here, just a well made, dry pilsner.
